Say No to North Florida Phosphate Mine

Florida phosphate mine

Phosphate mining in Florida is a brutal process that destroys landscapes, alters watersheds and leaves behind mountains of radioactive waste. It puts people, wildlife and our Floridan aquifer at risk.

That's why we need your help now to stop a proposal to dig yet another mine on 10,775 acres across Union and Bradford counties. Using the form on this page, send a letter to the Bradford Co. commissioners telling them you stand against destructive phosphate mines.

More than 300,000 acres of Florida have already been destroyed by phosphate mining. This mine would irreversibly alter the Santa Fe River Basin, destroy precious wildlife habitat and threaten the health of people in the area.

Don't let phosphate mining ruin more Florida landscapes. Take action today.


Please take action by Aug. 17, 2017.
